Granted this isn't "Closed Street" but Sapulpa Oklahoma might have a retort for you:

Personally I'd pick a stretch of US Highway for the FritzOwl Memorial designation.  :-D

Ethanman62187 Memorial Freeway, numbered I-366 and with a posted speed limit of 85.
Any street named after a disease (I actually have the Pearson S. Trail somewhere, with the 'S.' standing for syndrome)
Transatlantic Bridge
Express way, Free way, High way, etc.
Achimun Pinnara St. (Intersecting O Say Does That Star-Spangled Banner Yet W Ave. mentioned above)
Toll Rd.

On a related note, due to the way Spanish given names are set (With two family names) and our streets are named (With the street type as prefix), it is possible for a street to appear to be named after someone by adding the location name, where the street name is the first family name and the location name is the second family name. I managed to find this once (And surprisingly at the location itself, not through Google Maps).

Right, so why was it included in a list of names that will never exist?  (I'm vaguely aware of a BGS that might exist that says "New Haven Ct." referring to the town and not a street called New Haven Court, but I don't want that to be the only reason for this entry in the OP.)

I-420 was taken down (twice, I believe), while US 420 is now part of US 16 IIRC Alt US 14. All of this was unrelated to cannabis culture. OTOH, it was the signifiance of its number what caused US 666 to become US 491 (also, it was weird for a North-South road to have an East-West number, so as it stands now is better).

Another unlikely road name: TheAlan360 Memorial Goat Path.

I stopped short of saying if she won the election that it would be inevitable that there would be some roads named after her and not Bill.  Same deal with the Trump Highway I saw earlier in the thread.

Wolverine St. in any Ohio municipality, or Buckeye Rd. anywhere in Michigan

Dayton has one if a Drive is included (https://www.google.com/maps/@39.7359375,-84.2398372,3a,66.8y,170.77h,82.5t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sMbNq_lfPSciNwoNlfm4j3g!2e0)--Canton has one as well but no signblade. 

As far as US 666 being north-south, isn't that OK?  I thought the 3-digit US routes didn't have[/url] to follow the numbering convention.  (US 202 is another prominent example of such, although it changes back and forth.)

Actually there was a US Route 420:

http://www.usends.com/20-29/420/420.html

More than a handful of Interstate Spurs and state highways numbered 420:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highways_numbered_420

Rumor was when I was living in Florida that Lake Pickett Road saw a lot of County Route sign thefts...  Too bad Colorado and Washington couldn't join in the fun.

Bootlegger Trail in Montana

I want to say there is a secondary supplemental route in Missouri which would be akin to a county route that is signed as KKK...at least there is one floating on eBay now and then.

Not "Canyon" but there are plenty of Glory Hole Roads in 49er country up in the Californian Sierra:

The sad part is that the guy who had the KKK Route sign was asking a small fortune for it....   Silver lining was that nobody seems to have bought it over the past year...at least that affirms some minimal faith in humanity.  I'll post the ebay listing if it comes up again.  That said just goes to show how twisted up almost anything can becomes with time and a couple really nasty people.

Route 420

As if it was never proposed for an US or Interstate designation.
I-420 was taken down (twice), while US 420 is now part of Alt US 14. All of this was unrelated to cannabis culture.

Not to mention in Spain we have a very long road numbered N-420. In fact it is the second longest national road at 550 miles (only behind N-340, at which ends), although now it is split in two due to a section in the middle being downgraded to a first order regional road.

This thread has devolved into a mix of (1) street names that do actually exist but the member neglected to bother doing a cursory Google search first, and (2) silly names that only bear resemblance to street names by the addition of "Hwy" or "St" at the end. We seem to have run out of truly clever ones.

I was about to suggest "Hwy 0", but Wikipedia lists two highways with that number, in Belgium and Hungary. That makes me wonder, are there any highways with true fractions as their number? e.g. Route 6˝?

I fell casualty to #1 with Toll Road, as it exists in Salisbury MA (I even had read about it before in this forum :banghead:). I've done several clever ones, like the full name-like Pearson S. Trail. I don't think they would name a street after a disease, and in this case the S stands for syndrome (I've seen an upcoming trail running event directly named after a disease, though). And the several memorial highways specified to meet certain conditions, such as the FritzOwl Memorial Highway being an US route, the Ethanman62187 Memorial Freeway being I-366 with an 85 mph speed limit, the TheAlan360 Memorial Goat Path being and not being a goat path, and the dzlsabe Memorial Hypotenuse cutting through neighborhoods.

And a couple more:
John Muir Freeway
Any street named after a US president in North Korea.

SR 4 is also known as the John Muir Parkway from I-80 in Hercules to I-680 near Martinez, named for the environmentalist John Muir.

Its name is Parkway, but it has been upgraded to freeway for a while now.

These actually deserve extra credit, if you ask me.  If you design and post a route shield for TheAlan360 Memorial Goat Path, I'll give you a gold crown.  It will be prohibited to wear said crown any day except yesterday, of course, the violation of which is both required by law and punishable by burning at the stake.  VIVA EL CHIVO...

Hahahaha actually I appreciate that this was brought up...I never considered the massive irony in that road name until just now.

Yup. I thought they would never name a freeway after an enviromentalist, only to find it has already happened. Anyway, here are another three that will never exist:
Appalachian Freeway
Continental Divide Freeway
Pacific Crest Freeway

Also, I've mentioned a couple times there will never be a street named after a disease. This doesn't rule out the possibilty of a street named after someone whose last name happens to name a disease, like this rue in Marseille(s), France (https://www.google.es/maps/@43.2888098,5.4631485,3a,66.8y,48.94h,85.92t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sWs5-bnpK_nLNEnDPGYdXcw!2e0).

There are counties that didn't really feel like putting any effort into naming their roads and use whole numbers and letters for section line roads with fractions for in-between roads. The intersection of 19 1/2 Road and J 2/10 Road in Fruita, CO (https://goo.gl/maps/TG2X4bGTVn72), for example.

Oh yeah, I'm quite familiar with local road names including fractions. But signed route numbers is another thing.
